process, nor the u.s. law against killing americans abroad, nor the u.s. law banning assassinations, nor just the law against murder, nor the laws of war broadly legally constrain the president from ordering the type of assault that killed american citizen and prominent al qaeda figure on war al awlaki in yemen in 2011. al awlaki's son was also killed a couple of weeks after his father was killed. between those two killing, charlie savage at "the new york times" reported on the existence of a legal memo that the government was relying on to claim that the attack was legal. that memo is what is being disclosed to select members of congress tonight. it follows by two days the scoop by nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff, who this week on this show disclosed a white paper that was based on the reasoning of that secret memo. tonight's disclosure follows increasingly intense questioning of the administration on this matter by senate democrats, particularly by senator ron wyden of oregon, who today told reporters that while he understood that operations needed to be confidenti
about drones is not that u.s. forces can kill people from the air using targeted so-called precision-guided missiles. u.s. forces have been killing people from the air for as long as we have had the capacity to put armed things in the air. what is novel about what our government is doing now in our day is not necessarily the technology. yes, we are using remote piloted aircraft versus traditionally piloted aircraft to launch these same missiles. but the type of aircraft, that is, the delivery system for the hellfire missile is not the new moral strategic legal thing that we are finding ourselves newly responsible for grappling with as citizens. it is not the technology by which u.s. forces are killing people which is knew in an important way. it's not the technology that's new. it is the circumstances. it is the circumstances of killing people away from where a war is being fought. if the u.s. was using a mix of helicopters and drones to fire hellfire missiles at insurgents who were fighting with u.s. troops in afghanistan right now, nobody would have a different ethical concern or a

to get very, very desperate to find someone to run for his now open u.s. senate seat. also today, the president gives a barn burner in minnesota. he says on the political issue where we are supposedly so politically divided that we can never make progress of any kind, he says on that issue specifically, actually, right now we have a national consensus that we can move on. that's all ahead. >>> plus, the political right all at once, all in unison gets very vocally angry with karl rove. poor karl. frank rich from "new york" magazine is here on the show tonight. we've also got the latest conspiracy theory about the terrifying photo shopped secrets of president barack hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of th
and will now likely testify under oath and give full details of how he cheated for so long to the u.s. anti-doping agency. armstrong had been faced with a deadline to testify or lose his last chance at break on his lifetime ban from sports. in a just-released statement, usada wrote -- we have been in talks with mr. arm strorng and we understand that he does want to be part of the solution to clean up the sport of cycling. the sudden change comes on the heels of an abc news exclusive. our report that according to a high level source, agents are actively investigating armstrong or obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation, for allegedly threatening people who dared tell the truth about his cheating. a case reignited by his recent confession to oprah. >> i didn't invent the culture. >> mm-hmm. >> but i didn't try to stop the culture. >> reporter: if charges are ultimately filed, the consequences could be severe. >> these are serious potential crimes. you're talking about possible sentences, up to five, ten years. >> reporter: the pressures against armstrong are immense, and include civil

this morning and a health care burden for the u.s. neurologists predict the number of alzheimer's patients is expected to triple by the year 2050. that's when as many as 14 million patients may need care for the disease. the startling projection follows a study of patient records, as well as census numbers. >> doctors are warning parents about a strain of whooping cough. the new england journal"the new medicine" reports it's caused by a vaccine resistant strain. it's the worst outbreak of its kind in 60 years. >>> and what will be the story of the weekend. a powerful blizzard is zeroing in on the northeast, threatening to bring fierce winds and up to two feet of snow. the nor'easter expected to be the worst in years, is moving in from the gulf coast and the great lakes. snow is coming down this morning in chicago. but by tomorrow night, this storm will be unleashing heavy snow on boston and coastal new england. and that storm, as you know, could make a mess out of travel, even before the first flakes fall. some airlines announced plans to relax rebooking rules so passengers can change flig
such strikes are rarely used and only against targets planning to attack the u.s. however, the head of the intelligence committee, senator dianne feinstein, is calling for more openness about that drone program. >>> outgoing defense secretary leon panetta revealed for the first time that there was a plan in place to support rebels in syria. but that plan was vetoed by president obama because of worries that the weapons might fall into the wrong hands. more than 60,000 people have died in syria's civil war. >> by the way, i was just going to add to that civil war. it's cost that country the equivalent of $48 billion. when you think about a war, our war obviously has cost us trillions of dollars. but a country that has no money, and they're relying on us for help, $48 billion is a lot of money. >> and the u.s. has given syria about $210 million in aid to help those insurgents along. but this issue of whether we arm them is one. after two wars and libya, maybe the country was not ready to get involved in another country. but we put these arms in syria, how do we know they're not going
this week. here is the a.p. headline. u.s. limited in fight against north african militants. the united states is struggling to confront an uptick in threats in the newest hot spot with limited intelligence and few partners to help as the obama administration weighs who you to keep islamic extremists from jeopardizing national security without launching war. we want to put up a map here. and explain to people where this is. egypt, libya, algeria, mali, niger. when i read about the idea that we don't have enough intelligence, we've known about al qaeda in north africa since before 9/11. this is the original safe haven of osama bin laden, was north africa. did we drop the ball? >> you know, when al qaeda attacked the united states on 9/11, and it became clear that we had to go to war on terrorism against al qaeda, we focused on al qaeda's core leadership and where they were at. and we've done that. we've gone after them in pakistan, afghanistan, and going after them in yemen, going after them in somalia. yes, they are out there. >> it's been out there a long time, right? it's not new. >>
he's doing. >> reporter: but why now? dorner was honorably discharged from the u.s. navy reserve just last friday after ten years' service. including a tour in the persian gulf. was that the trigger for this killing spree? or evidence of careful planning? >> i have more questions than i do have answers at this point. >> reporter: if dorner gets his apparent wish, if he is killed, we might never know the whole truth. nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> wow. and this 6,000 word manifesto gives some scary insight into what he is thinking. one part in the document where he writes, self-preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death, as i died long ago on 1-2-09, referring to the day that he was fired. >> right. >> from the force here. so this is a guy as you heard from the piece who is looking to kill and be killed. that's what makes him so dangerous. >> this manifesto is interesting. he kind of switches between completely insane and 100% lucid. >> yes. >> he talks about two different political figures and different stars on television almost like this is something he now
the viewers who the doctor is and what he did for the u.s.? >> the pakistani doctor who helped the cia verify the location of bin laden and his compound in pakistan. he basically ran a hepatitis vaccination program set up by the cia and went to the compound under the pretext of vaccinating. and the calls to the compound to set up the visits were copied or traced by the cia and they've got a voice print of bin laden's personal courier and they knew they were on to the al-qaeda leader. >> and so our navy seals go in and take out usama bin laden and leave behind the doctor and he's arrested by the pakistanis, isi, thrown in prison and tried for treason and 30, 35 years. and have we done anything to get him back or to help free him? >> the efforts to get the doctor out have been very weak, quite frankly, on this side of the u.s. government, both at the cia level and also the state department in an effort-- in its efforts as well and one of the reasons, the u.s. government is very, very scared when it comes to dealing with the pakistanis, because they're so material, it's part of the pakistani mil
stewart is not surprised, take a look. >> the u.s. postal service says delivering the mail on saturdays must stop if they are to survive. >> the postal service hopes the cuts will help it save some $2 billion annually after losing nearly $16 billion last year. >> wow. i can't believe the business model of transporting letters with vehicles across the country for 40 cents a pop is failing. so where do you want me to take that, hawaii? no, no trouble, i'll put out a plane and get it there in two days. you got a quarter? yeah i'll do it for a quarter. yeah, [ bleep ] it, i'll just do it. >>> everybody's excited for the snow. poor bill has to work all day tomorrow. his son william's birthday. >> maybe you can replace me, go to his birthday party for me. >> i'll be happy to do that. how many inches in new york? >> i'm going for 6 to 8, weather service is going for 12. >> bundle up. still ahead, texts and e-mails are next.

and center. waterboarding, however you define it, is no longer front and center because the u.s. has discontinued doing it. we talk about "zero dark thirty." >> 400 drone strikes. do we know, any idea, about civilian casualties within those? any concept? collateral damage? >> it wasn't the best part of mr. brennan's testimony yesterday, there has been significant collateral damage. the numbers are obviously -- whether it's hundreds or thousands -- the real question is, you've got to ask yourself on a cost benefit way, yes. at times innocents are going to be hurt. you've got to ask yourself don rumsfeld's questions. what you are accomplishing against terrorists, is that to some extent offset by the fact that you're alienating populations and governments with whom you have to work? that's the question we have to constantly ask ourselves, this cost benefits test. >> john, it's donny. if we got to the point and as i listen to mr. brennan, where we were going to do a drone strike against an american citizen, it would be the most desperate of times, and i don't want to have to go through a

a market cap of $10 billion. >>> "the new york times," the u.s. has tightened economic sanctions on iran to force the ayatollah's hand to halt its nuclear program. this morning iran's supreme leader rejected proposals for direct nuclear talks with the united states. there's a concern that the effects of tighter economic sanctions will not have the desired impact despite a drop in oil exports and currency value, "the times" reports say the restrictions already in place have done little to slow economic development in tehran. >>> "the washington post," u.s. senator bob menendez tried to intercede on two occasions for his friend, florida doctor salomon melgan whose offices were raided by the fbi. occasion officials found he overbilled medicare by almost $9 million and ordered him to repay. twice menendez contacted officials to say they were unfairly penalizing melgan who is a campaign donor. menendez has come under scrutiny. he later repaid $58,000 for trips. >>> "usa today," walt disney has cleared the way for george lucas to sell his $2 billion stake in the company. that would allow the l

those words to you, did you say, holy smokes, listen to what this guy just told me, and he's in the u.s. senate? >> michael, i have heard a lot, been a negotiator, i have heard a lot. i try to put things in context, and i put that in context as well. this man is not an anti-semite, not an enemy of the state of israel. he believes in a special relationship with israel. he told me so. he just doesn't believe in an exclusive relationship. that is to say he's prepared to acknowledge that there are issues on which close allies, and we are very close to the israelis, may have disagreements and maybe even fundamental agreements. that, frankly, is common sense. >> the terms of this conversation are being set by a group of extremists in this country. aaron just called it the pro-israel lobby. i'm pro-israel, but i'm not in favor of the positions that these extreme supporters take. >> did lindsey graham make his point for him in the way he browbeat him? >> yes, of course he did. it, in fact, is among the stupid things that the israel lobby has wanted senators to do is to have these expressions of
. they were all convicted in u.s. courts and are currently in prison at federal maximum security facilities across the country. we as a country have experience prosecuting, convicting, and housing for life very dangerous people, including international terrorism suspects. that's why thompson, illinois, had competition when they said they want these guys. that's why thompson, illinois, had to compete with places like hardin, montana, and standish, michigan when they decided to seek the relatively lucrative labor intensive business of locking these guys up in their maximum security prison. and that's why the city of new york initially greeted the news of khalid sheikh mohammed's forthcoming trial at the scene of his crime as not just justice, but poetic justice. and then we lost our nerve. what happened? the politics of the past administration or something decided to come back. new york officials who initially responded to the khalid sheikh mohammed announcement day saying yes, let's do it. it's fitting that he face trial here where he killed so many americans. we can handle it. we are not af
. question-and-answer session, and point six was allegedly senator hagel said the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breathtaking if he said that. >> okay. so let's see if we're all on the same page here and have this correct. a right-wing website publishes a resumer from a blog based on something hagel may or may not have said in a speech over, count them, five years ago. and now sitting united states senators are demanding hagel explain himself. hagel provided ayotte and graham with a copy of the speech and notes he does not recall making any such statement. now, folks, this is a pattern for the new gop that maybe mr. viguerie is looking for. senator rand paul pushing a theory about moving guns from libya to syria. paul's theory can be traced back to glenn beck. michele bachmann accused hillary clinton's chief of staff of having ties to the muslim brotherhood. her source? an uncorroborated report from a right wing talker frank gaffney. congressman darrell issa got in the act. he orchestrated an entire circus over the f
